in other words, dealing with one problem here as opposed to 100 problems is what you are asking us to do. >> please. >> thank you for coming. my question would be, what could you do to get the government out of our lives and let us use our god-given ability and talent to make things better for everyone. >> i suppose the easiest answer would be just to vote no on new programs. i think there are a lot of things out there already this year than to have the pill. .. i have found it easier to stop -- to cause problems for not getting larger and not establishing new problems and i found it to do with older programs. programs. being a person wants to limit government, i found the best way to do it was through the taxing policy. if you limit the money coming into the federal treasury, you will limit what can be spent to some extent. you are still having overspending. i do not by the principal that an increase the dollar of taxes is a dollar reduction in expenditures -- in the deficit. a dollar increase in taxes does not result in a dollar decrease in deficits. what it results in is probabl

that democrats are using that as an excuse but maybe republicans are giving them one to push forward without them. >> ed henry, if this is true and seriously under consideration it seems a far cry from what we were hearing over the weekend from the white house, from kathleen sebelius, from the president himself, from robert gibbs talking about the public option being one of several things and the key thing is competition and choice. to go from that to suddenly moving forward ramming this thing through it seems like all day today they have been saying nothing is changing. it seems like a lot has changed. >> you are right. that is why they are not pulling the trigger tonight on this. over the weekend it was about the president showing flexibility saturday night on the town hall. maybe there won't be a public option. kathleen sebelius leaving the door open to no public option. she didn't close the door either. that was about trying to bring in kent conrad, a conservative democrat like ben nelson in the senate, show flexibility. if they ram this through with this procedural motion that will close tha

journalists are home after being set free by a north korean dictator and flown home by a former u.s. president who traveled halfway around the world to get them. it was an emotional homecoming in california for laura ling and euna lee as we learn more tonight now about how this all came together. we begin our coverage this evening with nbc's george lewis. >> reporter: free at last. the two journalists briefly savoring their return to america this morning, before being mobbed by their families. a poignant moment as euna lee's husband michael saldote, and 4-year-old daughter hannah held on to one another for dear life. and a big hand for the former president who secured the release of the two women after five months in captivity. >> we feared that at any moment we could be sent to a hard labor camp. when we walked through the doors we saw standing before us president bill clinton. we were shocked but we knew instantly in our hearts that the nightmare of our lives was finally coming to an end. >> reporter: throughout the journalists' 140-day ordeal, the families of laura ling and euna lee held vi

"the new york times" is reporting now that the white house list of potential candidates included some other big names. among them, the former vice president al gore. again the women worked for his cable network. and the new mexico governor bill richardson who travel
boundaries in the united states and for u.s. financial institutions. but i also think that that we need to coordinate globally since our markets and institutions are global as well. as far as the u.s. is concerned, you know, we have a multiplicity of regulators and even in the sweeping proposal from the treasury or in other regulatory proposals i haven't heard any move to -- you know, to consolidate them all into one and as i indicated, it's not clear to me that doing so would produce a better outcome. so the coordination would have to take place among the various regulators tt we have. however, we reshaped them so that information doesn't slip through the cracks so that we don't miss the activities of institutions who are regulated by one group or one regulator but who are engaged in activities that are properly the responsibility of, if you will, collectively all the relators. that extends across borders because markets are global and we need to court -- coordinate across borders with their counterparts across the seas and taking into account what institutions are doing either to as

these days. what is happening? . u.s. steel workers union in a conference call. he claimed that pittsburgh has snagged these big events because of its excellent record in labor and business relations, public/private partnerships -- they went back over the whole they went back over the whole story of our renaissance that 1950's and said it has all led up to today. frankly, there are probably other reasons why we got picked to be the site of the g-20 summit. i still have not figured the not yet, but i am assuming that we are attractive because we are perceived as a green city. we have a convention center which i believe was the first leed-certified convention center in the world. many buildings around town have been greened in that regard, so they are impressed by those efforts by arrest belt city to raise its environmental profile. also, i think barack obama has some pretty fond memories of pittsburgh. in the pennsylvania primary he spent a lot of time here last spring in the state and came to the city a few times. and also we do have a fairly strong labor presence here. i'm just speculatin
- based forms of fuel that is killing us and telling the resources we need to survive. last summer when gas prices were so expensive, people were screaming to, isn't it terrible. it is tough to live without gasoline but a lot harder to live without water, three days, that is it. i think you bring up a great point in terms of realizing the true cost of the exploitation of those kinds of resources. host: wisconsin on our independent line. caller: first, i want to thank you for c-span. i want to thank the two young people for being on the air. it is so important. i don't remember if it was discovery, national geographic or the history channel but they showed a program where countries -- several countries in the world where they are playing with our weather and putting some kind of gas pump up into the ozone layer and it is affecting the way in that gulf stream patterns and other patterns, and it is influencing -- excuse me -- influencing our weather. and also, why can't governments all over the world outlaw plastic? it would create jobs and get rid of all of this crap all of our water? hos
we'll treat it first. most families in china earn less than 1,000 u.s. dollar as year. the 15 cents is affordable health care. but reeed. we can't afford to treat major illnesses, she says, we're afraid if it's serious we'll have to spend a lot of money. but health care reform is also important to this economy. the chinese have an incredibly high personal saving rate. currently that's to cut against medical bills. the government is imposing a better health care system will mean that they save less and spend more. that will be good for economic growth. to do that, they have sun verse sal health courage of 20/20. >> here is tony harris. >> good morning, everyone. this is august 10th. the top stories in the cnn "newsroom." >>. >>> divers look for bodies in the hudson river. >>> a growing appetite in small town america. good morning, everyone. i'm tony harris and you are in the cnn "newsroom." temperatures are reaching a pitch and the chanting, the yelling, the hard to reach the debate through all of the noise. to determine what happens with health care reform, we'll cut through all of
in through the doors, we saw standing before us president bill clinton. >> boy, can you imagine how they were overcome at that moment? lee and ling were employed by the media company owned by al gore. president obama watched this joyous reunion on television as we all did here. he said he is breathing a sigh of relief now that the women are back home. >> i want to just make a brief comment about the fact that the two young journalists, euna lee and laura ling are safely back with their families. we are obviously extraordinarily relieved. i had an opportunity to speak with the families yesterday once we knew that they were on the plane. the reunion that we have all seen on television, i think is a source of happiness not only for the families, but for the entire country. >>> we want to know what you think about this, does former president clinton's mission, do you believe open the doors to better relations with north korea at this point? give us a call at 1-877-tell-hln or e-mail us at and you can text us your views at hlntv. >>> police say a man killed himself after firing 50 bul
at to get us going. the first is from brett green who writes for the denver under the title of a better america immersed from woodstock. he writes woodstock means little until you place it in the larger context of the society unravelling around the young adults. from their parents generation, they had absorbed rich idealism for social and economic justice. the piece by brett green and author in denver goes on to say, it was an interlude arriving in the context of more social and political upheaval than most americans have witnessed. it was a chaotic but peaceful interlude to a forthcoming breakdown between government and the governed when combined, it would end an unpopular war. i want to talk for the first half-hour, your thoughts, did a better america emerge from woodstock. the numbers ... twitter address is cspanwj. if you have called us in the last 30 days, send your comment via e-mail or twitter and give others a chance. >> what was it about the gathering, this carnival, this music festival that influenced your political evolution and did a better america emerge from wo

of us. in the private insurance market when somebody who is not on medicare but doesn't have health insurance shows up at the hospital and the hospital gets the doctor and they treat the patient and they have to do big surgery, you think the hospital just swallows all that cost? they and the insurance companies pass it on. it's estimated that in the private insurance market individuals pay over on average $1,100 a year for all the people who are not insured in the system and pay for it in a very inefficient way because they are not getting the preventive care up front. they have to wait until the problem gets worse because they can't go to the doctor's office because what does the doctor office say when you call them up. what's your insurance number? i don't have one so it gets worse and worse and worse and they show up at the hospital, much more expensive. who pays for it, all of us through our insurance and medicare through the system so we're saying people have to shoulder that responsibility now, but you can't say to somebody who earns $25,000 a year that you've got to pick up t

someone was using a firearm inside of there. >> it was pretty intense. when you get a chance to think about it, it happened so fast. once you realize when you were outside what happened, you saw the people running around. there was people that were shot and bleeding. it was a lot to take in. >> joining us now is dr. judy, clinical psychologist. how are you? >> you are welcome. tragic story. >> always good to see you. maybe we can learn something from this guy. what was his problem with women? i don't know if you caught this when i was reading it. >> no girlfriend since 1984. who knows why. i'm not ugly or too weird. no sex since july, 1990 when i was 29 years old. who talks or keeps data like that around. >> a lot of people feel rejected. there are men rejected, women rejected. you also read that he hated his mother and used some very nasty words toward her. when psychologically this kind of rejection from everyone. 30 million women, no sex. he is spewing this and blaming his mom. it gets very, very deep. most of us know how to deal with rejection and get over it. some people, like he

[applause] if these people are top tier candidates, they ought to be running whether they are free to lose or not. otherwise, they're just professional politicians and that charlie crist is a prime example. he was supporting the stimulus package without even reading it. >> i agree with you in the sense that in a perfect world, i think you are right. let me go back to the initial point which was what haley barbour said. according to him, most of the people who won the were part of the american revolution in 1994 signed on after the '93 victories. that is late to get into the game. that is only one year out. whether it is right or wrong, these people -- if someone runs for office, they are putting their life on the line put. it

, properly billed to the government and used to support estimates for future contracts. over 100 billion -- and i didn't say 100 million -- over 100 billion of contract costs have been estimated, recorded, billed and controlled using these business systems. the complexity of these systems gives them incredible power for documenting and managing business operations, but also, the potential to create formidable obstacles to transparency for oversight and audit when poorly designed, incorrectly used or not updated. those weaknesses and obstacles are at center stage in this hearing. we will swear in two panels of witnesses, today. the first panel will represent federal agencies whose work involves dealing with or auditing contractor business systems. those wilkenses -- those witnesses are jeff parsons, executive director of the army contracting command, april stevenson, director of the defense contract audit agency, david rickey, director of business -- director of contract business operations at the defense contracting management agency, dcma. our second panel will consist of witnesses from
the president will lose 100 votes in the u.s. house. meanwhile, senator inspector is not about to write off -- senator spector, is not about to write it off. listen to this. >> because there are some people who are discouraged about it. the coop might have the same elements where there is an operation which is not for profit. but let's write the bill, let's consider it and let's try to do something positive. gretchen: the interesting thing here is they probably have the votes in the house to pass the health care reform bill with the government-run program intact. but they may not have the votes, the democrats in the senate because a lot of the blue dogs have said, hey, we are not going to pass this, we are not going to put our nation further into debt for the remainder of our children and grandchildren to try to figure out. so the interesting thing about health and human services secretary kathleen cebellius was, was that for conservatives who don't want the government-run program or for the liberals? i think it was for the liberals. you saw the reaction more from them. steve: absolutely. g
to be an election. we'll be back with another national report card then. thanks very much for joining us. we'll have more tomorrow on "american morning" and "the situation room." let's go to a special "360" right now. erica hill filling in. erica? >>> breaking news on two fronts, including the apparent killing of one of america's top enemies in afghanistan and pakistan. first, it is a "360" exclusive. in her first interview since her sister's return, lisa ling tonight joining us on "360" to talk about what's happened since her sister laura and her colleague, euna lee, came home from north korea. how they're re-adjusting and how euna's 4-year-old daughter hana is doing now that mommy is finally home. former president bill children securing their release. he spoke publicly about that trip for the first time today. but frankly, said very little. >> i wanted those young women to be able to come home. and i wanted our two countries to have the ability to decide where to go from here. it would be wrong for me to say any more. the young women can speak for themselves about their experiences. the pictures w
